The Harmful Effects of Meth

Users and creators of meth alike are exposed to immense harm due to coming in direct contact with the drug.

Meth consumption directly damages the brain cells and can pose great harm to the body, as it erases the need for food and sleep and gains control over the brain.

Due to this, meth addicts report a decrease in appetite and sleeping issues, among others. Meth can cause:

Meth has a long lasting effect on the body, posing damage to the central nervous system and overall body functions. Meth addiction over a long period of time has caused damage to kidneys, lungs and livers of the addicts.

Drug Addiction affects everyone because it affects society as a whole. The consequence to our economy is about $150 Billion dollars. The impact on our loved ones is 125,000 deaths. These numbers belong to year 2003 and they keep increasing every year. More than 20 Million people in our country need treatment for substance abuse, right now.

After researching treatment, insurance coverage, treatment accessibility, our recent society problems and its relation with addiction itself, we see treatment as a gift that you give yourself. Everyone could benefit from taking time out of their stressful routine and reassess their lives and what is important to them.

Sometimes our search for pleasure and pain avoidance contributes to our addictive cycle. Our best thinking when we are in our addictive patterns gets us in more trouble and the chronicity of addiction continues.

Effects of Meth Use

There are extremely harmful effects associated with meth use which devastate lives. This is why meth addiction must be addressed immediately. Special care is needed especially on the part of family and friends since the meth addict in Blaine has very little control over their drug use. The effects of meth addiction are rapid and extreme.

Some effects are:

The above effects may start showing after extreme use of meth. Meth addiction, even if used sparingly can cause extreme harm to the human body. Additionally, if the addict has an overdose of methamphetamine, the effects may be much worse. Overdoses may lead to irreversible brain damage, the sensation of crawling flesh, hallucinations, delusions, tension headaches and paranoia, or death due to stroke or cardiac arrest.

How it Works

The meth vaccine works by preventing methamphetamine from entering the nervous system. This is done by attacking the drug while it is still within the bloodstream using the bodys immune system.

Since the addict will no longer be taking the drug, it will no longer enter the brain. This will in turn take away the incentive for use of the recreational drug.

On their own, meth molecules are too small to trigger an antibody response from the immune system. So unfortunately a meth addict is at the mercy of this powerful drug. In order to get the immune system involved, the meth vaccine, also known as M6 will link the meth molecule to a larger molecule, known as a carrier. This will trigger an antibody response causing the body to take action against the harmful meth molecules.

Help is standing by 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
